Welcome to my site.  

For a career I am a technology guy and I make my living designing and building high performance databases typically but not always for reporting.

I can be passionate about something and logical at the same time.

I care deeply for the human experience and about protecting the environment/planet for those that must inhabit it after we are gone.  I am an engineer at heart and was trained by the Navy to operate a nuclear reactor.  That experience and my experience as a navy officer driving ships has had profound impact on the way I think and see the world.

I can be passionate about something and logical at the same time.

It’s been another year and as I look back my major excuse for not posting is that I don’t feel like I know how to make pretty posts…
